Blogger Preview at Emblem Showroom

I was invited to a blogger preview event last week to check out the Spring 2014 collections of some emerging designers. My two favorite designers were Love, Gia and Rachel Sin. Unfortunately my camera died before I could snap enough photos.
 Every time I see patterns like this, I just think someone copied McQueen or Katranzou but these pieces were well done.
Love, Gia certainly felt to have the most presence at the event. The pieces were all leather and lace with detachable accessories.
This romper was my favorite. It came in a stunning red and white as well.
I loved this dress as well. It could be styled so many other ways.

Is it Fall yet?

Living in LA is always a catch-22. We want it to always be warm and beautiful but we also want to enjoy Fall fashion season! Oh, our lives are so hard. This is my desperate attempt to control the weather with my outfits. The sweater and tights lasted about an hour...

Burberry. Prorsum. $60.

This is quite possibly the best thing I have ever scored. I found this gem at Wasteland for only $60 when it was at least $2,500 retail. I have no idea why it was so inexpensive by it fit me like a dream! I just had to bust it out for my cousin's Bat Mitzvah seeing as that is the only formal-ish event I have on the calendar for a while. I remember seeing this dress on the runway and in the ads and wanting it desperately! Sometime it just takes a little while for things to appear at more affordable prices! I know I will be loving this dress for decades to come.

Flowing Flowers

I know it has been a long time since I have updated and I apologize! Finding a photographer is a constant struggle. Any way, this weekend, my cousin celebrated her Bat Mitzvah and what better time to use this as an opportunity to show-case designs I nearly never get to wear from my closet.

This dress is one of my prized possessions. It was a gift from my Grandma years ago for Christmas. We got it at UAL in New Orleans for only $300!!! The fabric is so light and flowing and feels like a million bucks. It makes me feel like a princess and sometimes that is exactly what one needs to be instantly cheered up. Stay tuned to see the stunning dress I wore to the party!

Coincidence? I think not...

Sometimes I wonder if there is someone following me around, watching what I do and wear! It's just a little bit crazy...

Chanel: August 2011
July 2012
Wasteland: January 2013

McQueen Spring 2013 ad

I swear I pick up on trends before anyone else but I guess lots of people feel that way. Its still crazy to see things I thought were unique to me hit the mainstream!
